Sarge_7

While assisting a friend with a short film, one of the actors approached me about getting some headshots.  During a break in filming, I took these shots near a roofed picnic area.  Because he was most interested in getting more tough guy roles in future films, I posed and shot him to create that impression.

No reflectors or artificial lights were used to create the images.  I did change the background color in post so it would provide better contrast with the actor’s skin tone.

I was recently in Los Angeles this December and visited a good friend.  Having never taken his portrait, I took these photos of him one evening at the Grove.  There was a large Christmas tree, plenty of string lights and a snow machine nearby, making for some great backgrounds.

A couple days ago, I was at Bond Park in Cary with one of my friends and his girlfriend.  He wanted me to bring my camera so I could teach him more about the fundamentals of photography.  While I was there, I took some portraits of them.  Here are two favorites.

I recently collaborated on another music video project with gospel/hip-hop artist Kareem Alston (aka Remo Soul) for his song “My Glory”. Here it is:

In case you missed his first music video (“This Dream”), here it is:

David_Nelson_Headshot_EXPORT

Last week I did a headshot session with David, a local actor.  He wanted an outdoor location for the shoot so I chose Spring Forest Road Park in Raleigh.  I first used the place to shoot a scene from my feature film project “Outside of Darkness” and was pleased with the surroundings when shot around sunset.  At the point when the above photo was taken, the sun was almost completely behind the treeline.  This left little direct sunlight falling on the actor, creating light that was considerably more diffuse yet still directional.
